Inclosed are very respectable recommendations of Mr George Augustus Cushing to be consul at Havanna. They were presented to me yesterday by Mr. Cushing himself, who appears a genteel man. I told him that I considered Mr. Moreton as appointed. These papers however may be filed in your office & if any thing should happen to Mr. Moreton, Mr Cushing may be considered as a candidate
I have the honor to be Sir your most obedient
